The Treason of Isengard | John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien
post image

As I start my section late tonight, it occurs to me my fellow #YearOfTolkien group, by starting this book we are now officially in the second half of the Histories of Middle Earth! That‘s quite an accomplishment, we‘ve read 1/2 of the histories already, more if we count the Rateliff Hobbit History, but half of Christopher Tolkien‘s epic deep dive histories about his father‘s writings!

Congratulations to all of us! Go us!!


Daisey This is a very cool thing to realize! Thanks for sharing. I‘m so glad we‘ve developed this group to read and discuss all these books. I love Tolkien‘s work, but I‘m not sure I ever would have attempted all the history books on my own. 3mo
BookwormAHN I'm glad I've joined in 😺 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey Me either, 12 History of books always sounded very daunting to me, but somehow as a group, one section at a time, here we are! Again, go us! It‘s a pretty great accomplishment, at least for me, if it was a game we‘d have earned some nerdy literary accomplishment badge. 📚🤓 📚 3mo

JazzFeathers I mean, we're cool, aren't we? 😏 I know l would probably never read these books alone. I even hesitated when we started. But we read Book of Lost Tales and l basically found myself inside the History without really realising it, and l loved reading group with you gals, and so l though, hell yes!!! And hey, gals, it will soon be our second anniversary, can you believe that? 😆 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers I completely agree, I was hesitant too, it‘s such a large commitment....but it‘s snuck up on me too...I‘ll try one and see how it goes, then that was pretty good, one more. I agree too the group kept me motivated and picking up the next one too. We‘ll soon be on our #Year3OfTolkien! That‘s impressive too! We are cool 😎 (edited) 3mo
wordslinger42 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers @Daisey It's crazy to think it's been that long! Although, I think it's only one year for me because I joined in late! 3mo
